Student Emergency Fund

The NIU Emergency Fund was established to provide assistance to NIU students who have been impacted by COVID-19 or whose circumstances have been exacerbated as a result of the pandemic. These funds are designed to help students continue their education; therefore, they are reserved for students who are currently enrolled in courses at NIU.


Contact the Center for Student Assistance at or 815-753-8300.
